When it comes to fire damage cleanup, there are a lot of things that can go into it. This easily turns into a multistep process, and workers must be aware of the hazards they could face when working in fire remediation. In order to properly clean up after a fire, you need to have the proper training and certification. That’s where the HAZWOPER comes in! In this post, we’ll take a look at what goes into a fire cleanup, in respect to our 40-Hour HAZWOPER training, available at NES, Inc in California.
Understanding Fire Cleanup
Before we get into our HAZWOPER training in California, let’s discussing the facts of fire cleanup. When it comes to fire damage, there are a lot of steps that go in between receiving word of the disaster and properly completing fire cleanup. From removing debris and damage to improving the building’s air quality, it’s important to understand how to handle, properly dispose of, and mitigate fire damage. It’s also important to know how to keep yourself and others safe in a potentially hazardous environment. Not knowing these important steps may cause more damage than has already been done.
What constitutes a fire cleanup? How do we go about cleaning up after a fire has occurred? How do you assess hazardous materials? What is the proper respiratory protection to wear?
The goal of HAZWOPER training is to prepare each student to safely and properly perform hazardous waste remediation and cleanup — including fire cleanup — in compliance with the OSHA Hazardous Waste Operations Standards. Whether you’re involved in hazardous waste remediation activities or have a risk of being exposed to hazardous substances or health hazards, we recommend signing up for HAZWOPER training!
